What is the advantage of using a smaller tennis racket head?

Does size matter?

Generally, advanced players prefer a smaller tennis racquet head size, from 85-95". Since most advanced players have a longer and faster swing, a smaller head size helps control the ball. Conversely, beginners and some intermediates tend to prefer a larger head size, which gives them a bigger sweet spot, and is generally more forgiving when mishits occur. No matter which size you choose, be sure to demo the racquet first before you make a buying decision.
